awesome.

one of the sickest playin' jams ever. in fact, the entire playin-> drumz-> uncle john's-> playin is amazing. the only minuses are that this recording cut the central segment of drumz and phil bows out for much of the juicy wandering noodles. once he's back after space, only then will you realize how this had the potential to be one of the all time greats.

Another great show by the boys. As is evident from the setlist there are lots of great tunes, for me especially that post-drums Uncle John's-tasty indeed!

This was my first show ever out west and to experience it here was wild and fun. The memories of this night are seared into my me as one of "the" nights in my love affair with this band.It was a pleasant culture shocking coming from CT.The jaw dropping beauty of the Rocky Mountains, Elderado Canyon, vibes of west & east coast heads melding, that "sound" of the music off the rocks, the large steps to dance on and oh yeah that guy trying to sneak in climbing down the rocks with a helicopter spot light on him. The city lights of Denver off to the east and dark sky provided a very cool back ground for the band too.The first set is one of my favs from this year, relaxed but intense they turn it up during every song. Just listen to Jerry's monsterous solo after the final verse in Alabama. GSET is wild and Phil is a monster, we camped at Chief Hossa and around the fire the kids were all saying it is the Phil Lesh band now. Peggio is simply amazing, one of the best period. Enjoying the Ride as we were still calling it, was in it's beginings and raw but the potential was clearly there. Dupree's was perfect for the psychedelic carnival that had arrived in town, Jerry's wah wah solo is a treat. Minglewwod was old school and off the track, this version rips. Bird Song put us on notice that we were going to the statosphere and to pack your bags now,an amazing version.A total ensmeble effort that is beautiful. Then things get relaxed, no reason to rush to the end here; and we get the perfect summer night tune Lazy Lightning. This has to be the best version I ever saw. Bob is coy and funny and the band, even when they miss a beat Brent saves the day, are enjoying it. They make up by recovering with that stop on dime approach which adds to the festive nature and sexual tension of this song. The Supplication is simply incredible, it just keeps building and building and Jerry, Bob and Brent just go off it is truely a perfect moment. Might as Well is high sprited and we are clearly riding that train one more time.
The first half of this set is the best part, the Help> Slip!> Franklin's is one for the ages. It explodes right out of the gate, the band is dead on serious. The Slipknot! is searing, mindbending and explosive. The entire band soars and slams it down,five minutes into it they come up for air and then launch off for another incredible jam. The Franklin's is easily one of the best ever a joyous romp with incredible playing by all and super vocal harmonies too. Jerry's final solo is like riding a tidal wave he just goes off. Billy & Mickey this entire show really sound great and step it up big time. The Playing is very good with some cool themes explored, the last one is very nice and suggests the transition jam in Cassidy. Listen to what Brent is playing. The space is a cool Bob & Jerry duet that arrives nicely at UJB with a Playin reprise, which is a nice come back to earth moment.The rest of the set is good, you get one more taste of that searing explosivness that charaterizes this show in T Stones. NFA is a little loose but warmly received and the Brokedown is sweet and a perfect ending to this night of incredible music.

This is a great set list,good show fun night. I think these were the good old days as wavy gravy use to speak of. I know that the years before were just as much fun to others.meaning the early to late 70's but this is around my 250th show at this point having been to my first in the spring of 79. U mass was my first show cuaght the bug and did not stop till fall of 89. saw them maybe 20 or 30 times after 89 just wasn't the same . these days maybe its just that i had been on tour now for 4 years solid with out missing many shows. its funny when your touring with the boys it becomes the only thing ya know. I loved the fact that where ever you would go in these years leading up to in the dark being realeased you could get a ticket for dirt cheap..these 3 shows here at the rocks were just that way. cheap tickets and nights full of friendship and good music.
anyway back to the music .the help slip franklins is the way it should be long jammed out and tight as can be. had the feeling this was going to be one of those playing uncle johns drums uncle johns playing nights but never happened. just a good old fashion playing drums uncle johns playing.had to wait until maine the following fall for that one.I got spoiled in the early days of my touring like St Paul 2 summers before. can ya tell am a playing unlce johns playing uncle johns fan? this tour in the late summer was alot of fun seemed every night they played there heart out. also any show they play brokedown palace is a fav of mine. usually gathering up my stuff at that point but nice to have this site to get the shows i went to. i have a basement full of shows from the old trading tape days to the modern age of online downloading.. THANK YOU GOD FOR THE GOOD OLD DAYS. and the ones to came at that matter.
